...Jesus prays for us showing His wounds to the Father - Pope Francis

"When we encounter problems or needs in the parish, at home, in the family, we must ask Jesus to pray for us. The Pope then asked: “How does Jesus pray? I don’t believe he talks too much with the Father.

He doesn’t talk: He loves. But there is one thing that Jesus does, today, I'm certain he does this. He shows his wounds to the Father and Jesus, with his wounds, prays for us as if to say to the Father: 'But, Father, this is the price of these! Help them, protect them. They are your children whom I have saved with these.'

Otherwise, why after the Resurrection did Jesus not have this glorious body, beautiful - with no bruises, no wounds from the scourging, everything nice? - but there were wounds. The Five Wounds. Why did Jesus want to bring them to heaven? Why? To pray for us. To show the price [he paid] to the Father: 'This is the price, now do not abandon them. Help them.' "
